Italy boasts a well-developed collection of motorways that are identified by 'A' signs. Cities are sometimes connected by toll roads that are priced at roughly £0.05 to £0.10 per kilometre. Although Italian drivers do not always observe road markings, foreign drivers are advised to adhere to local road rules. Many rural petrol stations accept cash only but those located in and around towns and cities usually take credit cards.
